'Black Velvet' was the name Bradley used when he was working as a James Brown impersonator. What he learned from the Godfather of Soul was visceral, touching and funky. Bradley had the dance moves, the howls, the yelps, the songs, and the screams, but he turned them into his own with a remarkable, singular voice. Black Velvet, the album, continues to travel down the same road of soul love that Charles Bradley began on his 2011 debut. Songs like 'Can't Fight the Feeling' (originally recorded in 2007), 'Fly Little Girl' (featuring Bradley on organ) and the heart-wrenching 'I Feel a Change' speak to the essence of his spirit. A duet with LaRose Jackson on 'Luv Jones' drops hard like a funk bomb. The powerful electric version of 'Victim of Love,' featuring The Sha La Das, works as a spiritual cousin to Barbara Mason's 1965 R&B hit 'Yes I'm Ready,' and when Charles Bradley hits his singular scream at around the 3:40 spot in the song, you'll know why he has earned his title as the Screaming Eagle of Soul.
